The Lost Chord: May 30 - Orchestrated Maneuvers

Get ready for Memorial Day with two symphonies composed for the armed forces.  Morton Gould wrote his Symphony No. 4 for the United States Military Academy at West Point – complete with part for “marching machine.”  Samuel Barber (pictured left) composed his Symphony No. 2 while serving in the U.S. Army Air Force.  The work’s second movement later became the basis for Barber’s “Night Flight.”  Listen in and remember, this Sunday at 10 pm.
